About the Hooks Institute programs

The Institute's mission of teaching, studying, and promoting civil rights and social change is carried out through its programming which includes funding faculty research and community service projects; hosting conferences, symposia, and lectures; and promoting and recognizing local and national scholarship on civil and human rights. We are excited to share with you in-depth descriptions of our work in each of our programming areas identified in the left column of our website's Programs page.
